I have been a barrister for 19 years with a background in civil, chancery and family matters.

As a barrister, I provide expert advice, in writing or in a conference. I draft pleadings for court and prepare court documents such as applications and I appear in court at all levels including County Court, the High Court and the Court of Appeal.

My work involves family finance disputes including cohabitation, property disputes (for example between parents and adult children), Inheritance Act claims, disputes between same sex couples (where they have not entered into a civil partnership) and professional negligence in these areas.

All of these areas are governed by the civil law, not family law.

The law in these areas is generally regarded as complex and in need of reform.

With my experience and expertise I can help you to resolve your dispute.

I practice from Parklane Plowden Chambers in Leeds and I also have a door tenancy at 1 Garden Court, Temple, London. I am happy to accept instructions through either set of Chambers at your convenience. The clerks at both Parklane Plowden Chambers and 1 Garden Court will be happy to assist you with your query.
